This dining room turned office happened fast and furious around here. It was the first time I’ve done anything like it with a deadline looming. It’s motivational – I tell you what!
I didn’t have time to plot and plan much in advance. I did, however, peruse my Pottery Barn book before bed each night. I thought that somehow the ideas would generate through sleep.
When we finally got the room all painted and the furniture in, I got the camera out to take the big “reveal” pictures. Here was round 1:
But when I sat down to edit the pictures, I realized the room looked so empty!
I realized it was kinda silly to cram myself at the end of the table. (And, yes, do you like the hot mess in the closet? Just goes to show what you can crop out of photos!!:)
Those two factors made us rethink the whole room. We ended up turning the desk so that the work station faced the direction I actually worked in.
and adding in a few more pieces of furniture made it feel not so empty.
Little by little we’re adding in the things that make it function in a practical sense. Things that aren’t necessarily beautiful ~ like a printer,
and cords gallore. (I hide them in those little covered baskets.)
Oh, and that hot mess of a closet? It drove me crazy until I finally cleaned it up.
I was tired of risking my life trying to dig the vacuum out!!:)
